By law, you have a right to access government data beyond that which is
presented in the Transparent Idaho website.
In 1990, the Idaho Legislature affirmed its commitment to
transparent government by enacting the Idaho Public Records Law. It protects your
right to access government records, so that we may hold our government
accountable. In Idaho, this law applies to all levels of government, from the
state to county and city.
If you would like to review information about Idaho state
government that is not available via the Transparent Idaho website, most likely
you will be able to obtain via a public records request made in accordance
to the Idaho Public Records Law.
